This is a a lovely late Victorian era set of color chromolithograph illustrated children's books circa 1890 - 1910 called the Peep 'O' Day Library Four Color Books for Boys and Girls Children's Bible Stories, published by Charles E. Graham & CO of Newark and New York. The set of four books are in in simply wonderful clean condition. The box shows a little wear, but is still strong and intact, and it clearly protected these books well over the years. The 4 hardcover books measure 8 & 5/8 inches by 4 & 1/2 inches and all have beautifully illustrated covers with almost no wear. The pages are clean and tight with no markings or foxing and the bindings are strong. These books look as if they were just stored away and never read. Each has 6 color plates in it, along with other black and white illustrations and all have 12 pages. The titles are as follows:
Bible Stories, The Story of Jesus, Old Testament Stories, New Testament Stories
This is a beautiful old set, with absolutely vibrant color illustrations throughout the books and on the covers. I have seen these books individually over the years, but never the entire set together and never in such clean condition, so this is a nice find for the collector.
